Brie Neilson and Her Othermen are playing a house concert in Golden on Nov. 19

Bring along your old framed photos for the ‘Picture Show’

Brie Neilson and Her Othermen are playing a house concert in Golden on Nov. 19.

For the next month Brie Neilson and David Simard will be counting snow drifts and collecting keepsakes, oh yeah, and playing some shows as well.

Starting Nov. 1 in Montreal, and reaching Golden by Nov. 19, the pair will be playing 21 shows in 30 days, from one side of the country to the other.

They will be asking audience members to bring along their found or cherished old framed photographs in exchange for a copy of the debut album, aptly named “Picture Show,” by Brie Neilson and Her Othermen.

Each night, new photos will be added to the display, allowing audiences to have their part in taking this picture show on the road.

Recorded at the legendary Studio Victor, “Picture Show,” brings flavours of ’30s big band jazz and ’50s country to a modern folk cabaret. All male harmonies and tail shaking horns provided by the Othermen will have you hypnotized.

Having enjoyed an active and well-established position in the Montreal music scene for the last six years, Neilson’s 1930-50s throw-back themed crooning can now be heard throughout the national touring circuit.

This will be her first cross-country tour, and who better to help Neilson through the process, than well-travelled performer and Othermen back-up singer and guitar player, David Simard.

After releasing his own debut album, “Slower, Lower,” last fall, Simard spent the past year touring his record from coast to coast, including a summer full of festivals.

Built on years of friendship, this charming musical pairing evokes the dynamic of Johnny and June (Cash), without the fist fights and broken hearts.

Besides meeting, or perhaps re-meeting two of Canada’s most talented unrelated siblings, that quirky thrift store frame and portrait of your old Aunt Ethel might buy you one of 2012’s best releases.

This concert is one among a series of Golden House Concerts. Brie Neilson will be playing at 811 7th St. N. on Monday Nov. 19 at 8 p.m. It is $10 to get in
